Design Wall Monday

Happy Monday! 

December is winding down fast. It is hard to believe it will be  New Years Eve tomorrow and we will start a new decade on Wednesday. On my design wall this week is the finished half square triangles for BH Mystery, and finished block for Ella Marie Deacon Quilt.

Up next are more 6 more blocks for the EMD Quilt while waiting for Bonnie to release the next clue.
Happy Sewing!

This week is for catching up on Bonnie Hunters Mystery Quilt, Frolic, and with hopefully getting back to the Ella Marie Deacon Blocks of the month. I am two months behind as of today- but with all the Christmas table runners complete, I will now have time to get caught up.
